TRIBUTE TO GOOD GREAT FATHER IN-LAW Death is not the end of everything; it only keeps a person absent from this present Planet Earth. The word of God is giving us assurance that after death there is still another life, i.e. for those who believe on His appearing. Therefore we take solace from God’s word. Regardless of whatever thing that happened in the past, papa was able to know God before he was finally called by His maker (God) the creator of the whole universe. Above all papa’s good life and legacy is worthy of emulation, your memory will forever remain in our heart till we meet to part no more. Goodnight Oke Ogo and continue to rest in perfect peace with God… Amen SON IN-LAW CLEMENT ENI EGWU

Daddy,I cannot believe it has already been two years. Two years that have created groundbreaking changes in my life since you passed away. The second year everything is done without seeing you again on this earth. You left me completely alone and honestly speaking it is in your absence that I now have the thought that I am on my own. I never had this thought before, this is because you were an anchor that held me back and was always there for me. I have seen the impact on our family that we lost you. Your death created a big vacuum and a huge loneliness in me, on a much serious note I must confess. Your death is like a wound, it hurts me so bad that everything seems too heavy, and the problems more complex for me to carry. Daddy, I am telling you the truth how it is, my heart aches, I am stuck with an incommunicable feeling of what is going on since you left. It is hard to create reality and illusion that at the point of your death I was not born alone. I draw solace running away from my loneliness because I want to be at my best for something better in my family circle. Daddy, I don’t want to fall in the sound auditorium of ‘OMG’. I am relearning to proclaim to my own psychology of finding strength from God who is my maker and who is always there to support me. I try to keep my happy hormone more reinvigorated, restful and peaceful to be able to carry the burdens. Please guide me to care as much as I can for I know that caring is in our DNA Lol. I pray to God almighty to give me the joy, enthusiasm, understanding and help me to carry the baton you gave me to perfection. Daddy, going to the village will not be the same, if I go there, I will not see you either will I see my beloved aunts, but all is well. Echemical, Echemicable, honestly speaking it has not been easy to see that you are gone forever, I will never forget you all for the rest of my life. I miss you so much, my indefatigable dad. No one can imagine how much I love you. Farewell to my mom, my stepmom, uncles, aunties, cousins, my father-in-laws, my mother-in-laws and my brothers-Emmanuel, Ugwu and Monday, who are there with you. May your gentle soul and their souls continue to rest in perfect peace. Your most expected daughter, Beatricx Ngozi Alu Eni, Oke Ada,Nee Echemicable. In His Love and promise

88th Posthumous birthday Shared by Beatricx Eni on 08/15/2017 IMG_6937 My confidential antennae is 88 years today. Daddy, you will not be missed forever. Since you left, your blessings have been sustaining us. I am still the 'nwachinemere' you said I am and I have acquired so many names- Oke Ada, Omecheri nnia, Nwanyi ka Nwoke. On a much serious note, these names lift up to the reams of the angels and the website itself gives me joy to celebrate you. Each year it makes a difference in my heart to remember you, my late uncles and late aunts- Patrick Ugwu, Gabriel Ugwu, Johnson Oyim Ugwu, Augustine Uwa Okokpa, Esther Igu Okokpa, Comfort Eze Agboti, Onya O. Onya, Bridget Ijeoma Okoroafor and Roseline Osinachi Egwu. May their perfect souls Rest In Peace as I celebrate all of you in tears. I wish I knew the existence of this beautiful website before their departures. Daddy, I inundate you with love and care. No disloyalty to my lovely husband, no resentment, bitterness, betrayal lounge or misunderstanding will come between my siblings and I. I am doing my best to carry everyone along. I wish you happy 88th posthumous birthday. If your spirit lives, continue to open doors of blessings for us. My regards to my mom and my stepmom. Your ever expected daughter, Beatricx Ngozi Alu Eni, (Nee Echem).

It is wrong to see papa's home call as a heart rending movie. Nnaye Alu Echem journeyed home with fulfillment. He was both father and mother to you. Although in your childhood he was far away, in your teenage years he bore all the pains of seeing people maltreat you. Once you ask him to tell you about both of you with tears filled eyes. He tried to, but words couldn't form, marriage took you far away from him yet your heart was with him,Your father and your mother. I remember the glow in his eyes when you visited home with your children, I remember his excitement when you whispered to him that you will travel with him to America. You did take him to US, you cared for him and the incident in Lagos Airport you cared for him. You had opportunity of enjoying your father against all odds. Papa was alive to see all that he lost at home, Calabar and during the civil war recovered in you. Papa wasn't alive for many years but God gave him life through you. He died a happy man a fortified Christian. A man who apologized to people he didn't really offend, A man of peace, a man who took it upon himself to be neat even if it meant sweeping his surroundings by himself. A man whose creative ingenuity in putting pieces of clothes together translated to putting the pieces of the needy together. Be consoled that you made him talk. You returned all he lost back to him. You made him realize that he wasn't a loser after all Let Pa rest in the bossom of the lord. Martina Omeri Ginger Eke and family.

Mrs Eni Ngozi U S A CONDOLENCE MESSAGE I write to express my heartfelt sympathy over the demise of your beloved father Pa Echem Onuu. Every form of death evokes enormous grief, my thinking is that when the deceased is a dear one the pain assumes a broader dimension. As you painfully mourn the exit of your father, I implore you to take solace in the fact that your dad lived a fulfilled live worthy of emulation during his sojourn on earth. He will be remembered by all and sundry for his meekness, humility. Kindness and unrestricted magnanimity which makes him outstanding and also a Christian. My prayer for you is that the almighty God will give you the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. Remain courageous and receive your strength from the lord. May is gentle soul rest in the bosom of the lord. Amen From Okpara Mary E. (Nee Eluu)

TRIBUTE TO A MAN OF FAITH MY FATHER The earth is not our home we must all go to where we began our journey into the world, but just in your case, I wish you didn't go back now Papa.

Papa, You lived an exemplary life and what extraordinary work you did as a husband, father, grandfather and an uncle. Not only have you lived all these years you have done so with grace, hard work and an excellent sense of humor. You were like that grandfather we never had. You were accommodating and loved the family. I learned the dignity of labor from you. You always laughed and lived life to the fullest while keeping your hard working values and that I am proud of. The footprint of hard work and love you left will remain a strong legacy for us and generation unborn. I will surely miss your sense of humor. I believe you will have a place in the bosom of the Lord. Rest in peace papa till we meet to path no more. Egwu Uchechukwu.

CONDOLENCE MESSAGE It is with deep sense of loss and gratitude to God for a life well spent that the entire family of Mr/Mrs. Peter Ulu-Chukwu Nkama commiserate with you and your entire family on the death of your father Mr. Echem Onuu which sad event place on... May I say that the passing on of your father is timely. Reason, Ng, you took your father to USA to stay with you, to receive some treatments and also to have rest, but after some months, papa started disturbing you to take him home that an elderly man should not be away like that. That he want to return home and stay in his house. Maybe Papa knew his time was getting close. Yes the right time for him to go home and rest. This is because a labourer must rest. According the Bible, it is emphatically recorded that to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. Nne Eni, your father is not death, is a change of body with Christ Jesus and as a devoted Christian he is there having rest with God. May God accept his gentle soul and grant him an everlasting response in his bossom. Once again, accept our sympathy. Ulu-Chukwu Nkama's family

TRIBUTE TO MY DEAR FATHER I got the news of your solemn departure with fear and trepidation. It aroused a lot of questions in my psychology. However, I do know that life is an enigma, that is, it is always lost at the point of celebrating our wishes and dreams. I am complacent that someday cosmology will give way to eschatology because nature must submit to supernatural even as death will submit to resurrection. On that glorious day, “amazing grace” will be our song in unism. Note worthy is the fact that we brought nothing to this world, in the same fate, we will go with nothing. Owing to the fact that 90% of us here today live is total psychological illusion is the reason for our insatiable quest to garner the stupendous immensities of life which ultimately define variety in whole and in parts. Papa, your lying in state is the best message for mortals who deferred their schedule to bear witness of your eternal commission to the fate of humans not withstanding their class in the society. Papa, I love and miss you but you are answerable to your maker who caused your existence via His possibilities. I am consoled by the blessed hope in Christ Jesus as documented in Paul’s epistle to the Thessalonians. Go in peace, goodnight! Eni Clement Egwu

A TRIBUTE TO A WORTHY IN-LAW Every blade in the field, every leaf in the forest lays down its life in its season, My family and I were shocked at the death of Pa Echem Onuu on the 24th of February, 2016; haven met with him in october 2015, when we visited home for the burial of my uncle´s wífe, ¨MRS COMFORT AGBOTI¨. Pa Echem Onuu was a man of honour that embraced Christ in his life. He had a good christian attribute which I believe, he inculcated into the children and other members of the family especially, the first daughter, Mrs Beatricx Ngozi Eni. He loved the family with a special love. He shared everything he had with the children; the dreams, the laughter and tears. His life entirely was full of loving deeds, forever thoughtful of the children´s special needs that endeared him so much to the children who loved and cherished him. I hereby urge everyone of us to seek the road that makes death a fulfillment as it is in the life of Papa who after witnessing everything in this life chose to follow Christ. sure, he made the right choice. To all survivor of Pa Echem Onuu, I say, cry no more, for ¨if tears could build a stair way and memories a lane, one could walk right up to heaven and bring Papa home again.¨ Papa is no more, but let us live in thankfulness that he was. And to those of us that share the same hope and faith with him, our greatest consolation should be that we shall meet with him again on that resurrection morning at the feet of our Lord and redeemer Jesus Christ to part no more. Agboti Fred & Family.

TRIBUTE TO MY FABULOUS GRANDPA Grandpa, distance did not give me the opportunity to get really to know you, but your visit to us in 2014 was one of the best experiences I have ever had to spend most of the time with you. I know what bothered you most was the language barrier which you laid emphasis to my mom. It did not give you room to share many stories with us. I am trying to learn our language, but unfortunately, I will not see you again to talk to you in "Ehugbo dialect." I remember my second trip to Nigeria, I woke up one early morning and saw you at the age of 85, sweeping your compound. In a surprise, I ran to my mom to come and observe what you were doing. I was amazed you had such strength to carry on with life. I was so devastated when I heard the news of your death. I wish I had the chance to see you again before your death. Grandpa, I will always miss you, but I will hang on to your memories. I did not witness your abundant memories, but the little I have is enough for me. My mom shared many stories about you. You faced ups and downs of life, but you survived and was able to raise your children as much as you could. You lived a long and a healthy life. I thank God I was able to meet you. Thank you for whom you made my mom be and thank you for having stood in the gap for the family. Grandpa, jisie ike. Your granddaughter, Destiny Ijeoma Elum Eni.

Tribute to a grandpa that cared so much for his family The majority of you know that my grandpa, Echem Onuu, passed away on February 24, 2016. It took me a while to think of specific occurrences when he impacted my life. I am grateful that he was able to visit us in the United States. I had the privilege to spend time with my grandpa. We went to Church together; he spent most of his time in my room. That was an excellent relationship, experience, and the first time I bonded with him. Grandpa, It was fun with the little time you spent with us. You became part of my daily life. My siblings and I appreciate you. It is very devastating that you could not live any longer. I hope one day I will meet you again in Heaven. I love you so much, and I still remember the memories of having been with you. You showed us whom you were and my mom shared your stories with us. You were as fearless as an Eagle. You are my hero, you fought for our country during the Nigerian-Biafran war. I delight and give thanks to the Lord for your safe progress to Heaven. I thank God for remembrance and sacrifice of the Family Faith Center, Assemblies of God Church, Montebello California for their prayer and efforts they shared with us at the time of our grief. Grandpa, I miss you so dearly, but I will treasure your memories forever Good bye great warrior, Your Grandson, Daniel Chibuike Ogbonnia Eni.

Tribute to my father In-law I will miss you. When we loose someone we love(no matter how old they are) it feels like time stands still, but we find succor in the loving memories we shared. When I heard the news of your demise, my heart sank in deep sorrow. I expected you to live a little longer, but God knows the best. You were an epitome of wisdom, peace, love and kindness. I admire that a lot about you. The last time I was with you, you prayed for me and my wife and you told us to take care of our family. Papa, I miss you. Fare well Papa, Adieu, may your soul rest in peace Amen. Son In-law, Okechukwu Chiekeziem

TRIBUTE TO MY FATHER My loving father, Echemicable was a God-fearing father, peaceful and gentle, and jovial. Echemicable, you were one of the strongest men that I have ever known. Though you encountered many trials and tribulation as you sojourned through life, you never allowed them to overcome. Papa, you were a true, despite the hard times, with God's help you had to carry on. If roses grow in heaven, please Lord pick and put them in my Dad's arms and tell him they are from me. Tell him that I love and miss him. Sleep on Papa, Adieu, and may you continue to rest in the Lord's bosom. Daughter, Elem.

TRIBUTE TO A STRONG GRANDPA Oh papa, you stood for strength, hardwork and love. Your love for your children, cousins, nephews, nieces and other relations was overwhelming as you would accept and accommodate any of them that came to you for assistance and help. i will not forget how grieved you were when you were informed of your sister's death (Late Mrs. Okoroafor Bridget). I wondered at how a strong and old man like you could still cry because of your sister's death. Your stories and practical examples of hardwork is worth emulating. You are such a strong man that could do almost everything on his own. You were full of life and strength until your last days. I wouldn't have believed that you could go now. You even fought death until you realized its inevitability and so you threw in the towel. Thank God that you acknowledged Him even during your last days on earth. That's how I know that in heaven, you are. Adieu Echemicable. Rest in the bosom of the Lord till the last day. Your Grandson Ifenayichukwu Okoro

TRIBUTE TO MY GOOD FATHER IN-LAW I thank God for my father in-law, Mr. Echem Onuu. He is now home in heaven with God. If I am ever single and have the chance of marrying again, I will definitely go back to my father in-law and get married. Honestly speaking, I thank God almighty, who gave me my heart desires in marriage. I also thank God that my father in-law lived his faith and loved the church. I am highly impressed and encouraged by the way he led his family. He loved, disciplined, provided and was there for them till the time of death. I am mostly thankful to God because of my wife, whom he raised. She is in many ways a replica of her father. I have witnessed his attributes in my wife. she learned, hard-working, honesty, homely, generosity, gentleness, accommodating, caring, importance of family, and the need to live life worthy of emulation. Though sometimes she does not listen, but I am benefiting every day his contributions as a father. My father in-law, distance did not let me obtain much from you. When you visited us in America, it pained me most that the time I had opportunity to reap your wisdom you can hardly hear me. My wife and I did all we could to restore your sight and sense of hearing. I appreciate my wife whom you entrusted to my care. I promise I will continue to love and care for her all the days of my life. Thanks for your legacy that will ever live with us and thanks for the unbreakable cord you created in my family. Goodbye my dearest father in-law. John Ogbonnia Eni

Papa, You are going to be greatly missed. I can remember when I was in school in Mater Misericordiae Hospital Afikpo, any time we had a ceremony, you were the person that would break the kola nut. I respected your powerful and honorable presence as you spoke to us before the opening ceremony. My friend inherited that aspect of your personality. We love you. Rest in peace.

TRIBUTE TO MY BELOVED GRAND PA Dear Grandpa my mouth is full with words that I don’t know were to start. I remember when I was a little girl how you use to advice me on what to do and blessings you used to give me and my younger ones always bring success to us. Papa you are so kind to me that I can’t never forget you. The life you lived on earth was so loved that everybody admired you. You lived a very good life and worthy of emulation. You tried to organize us your children and make sure that we are educated. You attitude, conduct, personality and the aura you possess is unquantifiable. Your attitude towards humanity is what keeps us acceptable. We love you, I love you but God loves you most. May you rest in the bosom of the Lord.
